The New Hyde Park-based Northwell Health system has been honored with its first Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, ranking 65th among the 100 best companies in the nation to work for in 2021.

The Best Places to Work award program, run by job and recruiting website Glassdoor, is based on the voluntary and anonymous input of employees, who provide feedback about their jobs, employer, benefits and work environments, and determines winners by evaluating company reviews shared by employees over the past year.

This year, Northwell was recognized as a Best Place to Work among U.S. companies with more than 1,000 employees, with a company rating of 4.3 out of 5, with 5 being the highest score. Employers with at least 75 ratings across eight attributes are considered for the list.

“This award is truly a significant achievement for Northwell Health and is a testament to our dedicated 75,000 employees,” said Michael J. Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. “For nearly a year our entire workforce has banded together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, with our team making significant sacrifices of themselves and their families to treat the 128,000 coronavirus patients to date at our facilities throughout the region. It is remarkable that the health system and its employees would be recognized with a Best Place to Work award during these unprecedented times.”

“With the extraordinary challenges our staff has faced treating patients during both COVID-19 surges in the New York metropolitan area, our leadership has been focused on the health, safety and well-being of our team members,” Dowling added.

“Unlike other employer awards, Glassdoor does not have self-nominations or applications, it relies on reviews from current and past employees so the process is very transparent,” said Joe Moscola, senior vice president and chief people officer at Northwell Health. “Glassdoor reviews help with our continuous improvement, whether comments are positive or negative.”

“In addition, we continue to listen to the voices of our team members surrounding many different societal issues, central to our core mission,” Moscola said. “The health system has championed social justice issues to help combat disparities in health care and ensure the equity of care in the communities we serve. This work carries through our facilities, workforce, neighborhoods and region as we strengthen our national voice on critical human rights concerns. We are creating new dialogue and events that unite our health system to move towards solutions.”
